Update:¬†Both Sean Couturier and Michal Neuvirth won’t return to Wednesday’s game thanks to upper-body injuries.

It’s been a busy few minutes so far in the Boston Bruins and Philadelphia Flyers clash, and now it seems as though Michal Neuvirth may be hurt.

That’s the impression many get, as Steve Mason replaced Neuvirth to begin the second period.

Allowing two goals in the opening frame can explain it, yet Neuvirth doesn’t appear to be on the Flyers’ bench.

Onlookers wonder if the injury may have occurred during the second goal, scored by Patrice Bergeron. Neuvirth went down for a while right away, and it’s possible that Bergeron caught him in the head while deflecting the puck in.

Granted, it would be a bit of a delayed reaction:

Take a look for yourself in the video above. We’ll see if any official explanations surface later on.
